Year 6 and Year 3 sharing reading




Almost 50 Hothfield pupils braved icy winds, when they took part in the Silsden Cross Country race last Wednesday afternoon.  Children from Years 3 to 6 showed great spirit and determination as they battled in deep mud to complete 1 or 2 circuits of the park, with many runners finishing in their socks having lost shoes on the way round.   The race marks the close of this year’s in the KCAC/Oakbank Primary schools cross country league and the great turn out from Hothfield makes us hopeful that we will once again achieve excellent team results, when they are announced next week.   Special congratulations to James and Lily who won individual medals.   Well done to all those who took part and a big thank you to all the parents who helped marshal and support.  Miss Woffenden and Mr Carey.

Great Linking

Year 4 children from Hothfield and Year 3 children from  All Saints Primary School in Bradford have taken part in 2 very successful cross over days this week.  The children worked really well together and had a great time constructing tremendous towers out of just newspaper and masking tape, decorating delicious biscuits for their partners to enjoy  and dressing up in silly hats to have their portraits drawn.  They also enjoyed teaching each other new games at playtime and sharing their lunches and special buns together.  Thank you to All Saints children and teachers for making us feel so welcome in your lovely school and we’re looking forward to seeing you again in the summer.  Mrs Carter and Miss Woffenden
